Overview

Annemarie Colbin learned early of the important relationship between food and health: having grown up in a vegetarian household, she spent many years integrating Eastern eating philosophies with Western habits, studying the works of everyone from J.I. Rodale and George Ohsawa to Julia Child and James Beard. With The Natural Gourmet, Colbin takes her ideas about healthful eating a step further with meals that nourish body and soul, and that are elegant enough to serve to company.

The recipes included in The Natural Gourmet are the result of a collaborative effort by Colbin and ten students from her Natural Gourmet Cookery School in Manhattan. Each recipe is classified according to the Chinese Theory of the Five Phases, making it easy to combine the various courses to create a balanced, harmonious meal. Among the delicious dishes you'll find are:
-- Curried Apple-Squash Bisque
-- Mushrooms Stuffed with Garlic and Rosemary
-- San Franciscan Pizza
-- Lissa's Homemade Black Pepper Pasta with Scallion-Butter Sauce
-- Stuffed Cabbage Rolls
-- Jalapeno Corn Bread
-- Japanese Red Bean Soup
-- Lentil Croquettes
-- Potato-Cabbage Casserole with Dill
-- Black Bean Salad with Corn and Red Pepper
-- Pasta Salad with Zucchini and Chick-peas
-- Poached Salmon Fillets with Mock Hollandaise
-- Almond Flan with Raspberry Sauce
-- Ginger Lace Cookies
-- Orange Loaf with Walnuts
-- and many more

All the recipes are in keeping with Colbin's belief that food should be whole, fresh, local, and seasonal -- and, of course, delicious. Much more than simply a cookbook, The Natural Gourmet presents a combination of food preparation and philosophy that come together in a plan for healthful and graceful living.

Many thanks to author Ann Marie Colbin of Natural Gourmet and Foods for Healing. This author provides an abundance of healthy information and recipes for my lifestyle. I'd also like to thank Barbara Meza, a knowledgable friend and licensed Nutritionist in New Jersey. Her support and guidance in natural healing supports the mind, body and soul. If it wasn't for her recommendation of these two books I might not have turned my life around for the best. Since December 2009, results are noticeable, said Barbara Meza. I first became aware of nutritional guidance from Talk-Radio Host(former Dr. Robert Giller) many years ago while offering Alternative Health Services in his Manhattan, NY office. After his death it was a struggle to search for a reputable source that could provide the nutrition my body needed. It wasn't until December 2009 I met Barbara Meza once shopping at Johns Natural Health Food Store in Bayonne, NJ. Recommendation of THE NATURAL GOURMET was a life saver for me. She also suggested meal plans suitable for my lifestyle with well balanced nutrition and delicous recipes that my body requires. Amazed with the lifestyle changes and the self-esteem I'm encountering with natural healing methods. I am forever grateful and share many thanks to these two professional women with their knowledge and compassion. Warm regards, J.A. Zielaznicki Fine Artist http://artistjz.mosaicglobe.com New Jersey
